THEATRE
Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World
08/12-02/01 – Playhouse

Liverpool Playhouse is eschewing the usual yule trappings for an altogether more empowering affair this Christmas. From the producers of the international phenomenon that is SIX, Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World is set to be an equally innovative and uplifting production which carries an important message for theatre-goers. The story follows school pupil Jade who meets great historic heroines such as Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst for a night of pop-infused lessons in humanity’s game-changers. Dramatist Chris Bush, who was behind the smash hit Richard Hawley-inspired musical Standing At The Sky’s Edge, has collaborated with one-woman hit factory Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue) to adapt the famous picture book by suffragette descendant Kate Pankhurst. Audiences can expect razor-sharp pop songs and a narrative that will inspire and move.

The world premiere of the stage production opened in Southampton in November and only visits Norwich before taking up residency for four-weeks of shows at the Williamson Square venue. SIX visited the same venue two years ago for a sell-out run and has won awards across the industry, including two Olivier Awards for Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music.
